I have very little space to grow seedlings, but of course I ignored that fact and made WAY too many crosses this year and am harvesting WAY more seeds than what I can possibly grow Hilarious!

Today I harvested a pod that contained, among other normal seeds, what appears to be conjoined seeds. Anyone seen that before? I’m definitely going to plant it because I’m very curious to see what happens!

I have. Conjoined seeds, while not common for me, do happen every now and again.

The very first is the only planting that I made cursory notes of. Those first conjoined seeds grew their first year with what appeared to be a single crown with two fans. Each of the fans scaped at the same time at about the same height and opened their maiden blooms within one day of each other. The blooms looked identical to my eye (very plain with little possibility for improvement) and since the scapes showed nothing special in the way of bud count or branching, the plant was composted.

When digging the plant for compost, I did take note that the root system appeared to be much too large for a single crowned plant, but since I wasn't keeping it, it mattered not.
